Grant Lockwood, CISO, Virtus Health, and executive member of the CyberEdBoard

Complying with data regulations in different countries is getting trickier for most CISOs. Therefore, it is important to have structure separation between different data sets, says Grant Lockwood, CISO at Virtus Health in Australia.

"Data regulation is a growing problem," Lockwood says. "We have a presence in Australia, Singapore, Denmark, Ireland and the United Kingdom. There are five different sets of data regulations to comply with."

"We have found that engaging with our legal teams has really been the key to understanding what we are allowed and not allowed to do with our data. One thing that has really worked for us is keeping structural separation between different data sets from different jurisdictions."

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, as part of the CyberEdBoard's ongoing Profiles in Leadership series, Lockwood discusses:

  • The changing definition of critical infrastructure in Australia;
  • How the healthcare industry has evolved in terms of cybersecurity;
  • The best way to handle regulations in different countries.

Lockwood, who leads cybersecurity at Virtus Health, has 20 years of IT experience. He shares his experience at the pointy end of healthcare cybersecurity with a range of organizations, helping them to improve their resiliency and cyber confidence.
